TUNIS (Reuters) - The death toll from flooding in Tunisia rose to 11 on Monday after heavy weekend rains caused rivers to burst their banks in the north of the country, official news agency TAP and local media reported.

"Three bodies have been found so far, bringing to 11 the number of victims from these torrential rains," TAP said.

Five people were still missing in the floods, which swept away cars, blocked traffic and inundated streets and homes north of the capital Tunis. The security forces were still searching for survivors, TAP said.
